One Republican’s impeachment ultimatum took Donald Trump by surprise

The Senate is expected to begin its impeachment trial next Tuesday.

But before the trial kicked off a major curveball was just thrown by a key Senator.

And this one Republican’s impeachment ultimatum took Donald Trump by surprise.

RINO Senators like Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski are making noises that they are willing to join the Democrats in letting Chuck Schumer call the shots as to calling witnesses at the impeachment trial.

Democrats in the House refused to wait for court battles to compel witness testimony and are counting on the Republican controlled Senate to conduct their fishing expedition for them by calling John Bolton, Mick Mulvaney, and other supposedly key “witnesses.”

But Republican Senator Rand Paul told POLITICO that if Democrats force votes on witnesses Democrats want, due process dictates the President gets to call his own witnesses.

“My first preference would be to be done with it as soon as possible and not to have any witnesses,” Paul stated. “If they insist on having people like Bolton coming forward, my insistence will be not just one witness. But that the president should be able to call any witnesses that he deems necessary to his defense.”

Paul explained that swing state Senators would then be faced with infuriating the conservative base and losing their elections if they vote against the President’s witnesses such as Hunter Biden, Adam Schiff, and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.

“If you vote against Hunter Biden, you’re voting to lose your election, basically. Seriously. That’s what it is,” Paul said during an interview in his office on Wednesday. “If you don’t want to vote and you think you’re going to have to vote against Hunter Biden, you should just vote against witnesses, period.”

Paul’s threat to force votes on witnesses Democrats don’t want to see take the stand could end up acting as a deterrence to calling witnesses altogether.

And most Republicans would be perfectly happy with that development.

This impeachment is a partisan sham and the sooner it is done away with the better.

  1. OK, so they vote on whether to have witnesses or not that I get. I also understand they vote as to how many each side gets. What I don’t understand is why they vote on who you can call as a witness? With a majority of votes you could definitely fix a trial.

  2. Nancy says, as a catholic (notice the small letters) she can’t hate but she is pro-choice which means she OK’s murder of babies and future babies.
    Go to Confession Nancy as you have been responsible for the death of babies and future babies than Hitler!

  3. And America bites the dust with traitors in the Senate wanting to let the Democrats run the Senate . Not only is it unjust but what do you expect from them.

  4. ALL those closet donkey’s also stop trying to act something like a republican !! do ant of you know how many years maxine waters, nancy pelosi have been
    around ? the house of representives are up for election / re-election, every 2
    years !! waters – 15 times !! ( 30 years !! ) pelosi – 30 times !! ( 60 years !! gheez, i need a beer !!

  5. Patricia stump,you ignorant lefty liar.comparing any politician in the USA to hitler shows just how fkn stupid and ignorant you are.close your filthy c sucker before you say anything more to show your lack of intelligence

  6. Mitt Romney and the other Republican traders should crawl back into the hole where they belong. Next time they run for office, other Republicans should run agaist them in their primaries and sent them packing

  7. My recommendation is that the democrat charges be given to the judge for evaluation that they meet Constitutional standards for impeachment, and fulfill legal requirements.
    Let’s start right.

  8. Term Limits Term Limits Term Limits!! Trump & GOP 2020. Vote Out the Rino’s also!!! President Trump will announce during the presidential debates & millions of citizens will vote for DJT 2020!! Most Americans, Dems & GOP wants this for We The People!!!

  9. Justice Roberts will have no choice but to dismiss with prejudice so it cannot be revised. There is nothing in the Articles of Impeachment that rise to treason, bribery , or high crimes and misdemeanors as required by the constitution. End of story.

  10. Mutt Romney is a traitor to America and the Constitution! Just anther corrupt politian fleecing American tax payers! There’s a special place in HELL for them.

  11. If the House wanted a Fair Trial, then why didn’t they support a Fair impeachment Hearing when it was in the House…If the Republican’s Submit to the Demands of the Democrats, then they have NO Business being there Representing the American People….We Finally Have a President that 63 Million People Voted for, that is willing to Fight for the American People and the Democrats can’t Stand it….If the Democrats Remove a DULY ELECTED , that the American People put their Trust to Do the Business of the American People, Because someone has got to, because the Democrats , for the 2 1/2 years focused on Impeachment and has done Nothing that they were voted in office for , but one thing is for sure , the Democrats has Broken The Laws and Now they’re trying to pin it on the President….How is it that President Trump has done the Impossible, how did he do in 3 years that the Past Administrations couldn’t do in the Past 4 Administrations……THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOWS THAT THIS IS ALL A SHAM, AND A DISGRACE, AS FOR THE R.I.N.O.S , YOU ARE PUT ON NOTICE, AND WE HOPE THAT WE THE PEOPLE NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN, BECAUSE YOU ARE ALL TRAITORS TO THE U.S.CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND YOU SHOULD ALL BE HUNG FOR THE TREASON THAT YOU ALL COMMITTED, RIGHT ALONG WITH THE DEMOCRATS THAT CARE MORE FOR OUR ENEMIES THAN THEY DO FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. POTUS has been impeached by house demodonkeys. Let impeachment hearings begin and let both sides bring in witnesses. One glorified politican said “I’ll be a circus”. Well, the circus has begun and let ALL the clowns begin their acting. Once the circus is over and POTUS is acquitted ALL hell will erupt. POTUS will unleash his fury on demodonkeys like no one has ever seen! (sounds familiar?).Can not wait see the out come of the impeachment hearing. What a fxxking waste of time and taxpayers money! OUR AMERICA! The greatest COUNTRY in the world!

  13. We have the House for the sole purpose of impeaching the president. Their job is to do everything that is needed to present a case that is ready and airtight to the Senate. If that entails the calling of witnesses and following the due process in order to get their depositions, then that is what the House should do. Sadly, the House Dems are just plain stupid. They truly are so deranged that they have no clue about the process and how it works. The Senate has no duty to do anything outside of its scope – to try the case on the merits that the House has sent. That is fair and in line with the Constitution. Dems can’t make demands on the Senate and cry cover-up if they don’t get their way.

  14. What ever happened to the good ole trusted court proceedings where you are innocent until proven guilty? Remember the one we have in the USA, the one mentioned in the Constitution. Just because you don’t like the president does not mean you try every way possible to fracture his agenda, you should start planning how to defeat that person in the next election. Quit worrying about votes and meet at least 60/40 on the stuff that will continue to keep OUR country growing, and not driving inflation and freebies paid by tax payers through the ceiling of the house! Learn from each other and know you may not always agree.

  15. More witnesses is simply a breach of due process pure and simple. A. the House REFUSED
    any fact defense witnesses to appear for Trump, B. The House use witnesses that were proven without any question whatsoever to have THIRD-Hand info at best, absolute lies and fabricated documents for the most part, KNOWN AND CLEAR FALSE!!, And now this Russian-Style Kangaroo court moves to the Senate with a full host of House CLOWNS to join their Senate Clowns. Oh Wait-they want to call more witnesses to prove a case that the world knows beyond any shadow is C R A P?? An American Injustice. Absolute criminality on the part of the Demorcrat party, and ANY Republican TRAITOR who votes with these totally UNAMERICAN FOOLS.

    ATTENTION:
    McDonald’s corporation is now practicing censorship on a regular basis. From January 5th thru January 12th 2020, I have been to the McDonald’s at Marland Pkwy and Tropicana in Las Vegas, Nevada four times for coffee early in the morning. Each of the four times at this particular McDonald’s, I attempted to read a political article online. The website for various political articles is called; “Conservative Revival”, after I tapped on my phone screen for a desired political article to read, a notice appeared which stated: “WEB PAGE BLOCKED”. I was not attempting to watch pornography, which I hope is always blocked at this type of establishment. I was only attempting to read a political article online; however, it was blocked… CENSORSHIP AT MCDONALD’S.

  17. PATRICIA: ALTHOUGH YOU MAY FEEL GOOD SAYING YOU CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN HELD BY CURRENT ICE OFFICIALS, UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY SPEND TIME THERE AND ALSO TOUR AUSCHWITZ, YOU ARE DECEIVING YOURSELF BIG TIME. BY THE WAY, HAVE YOU VOLUNTEERED TO HELP DOWN AT THE BORDER SINCE YOU CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THE CHILDREN? IF NOT, DON’T CRITICIZE, ESP. WHEN THEY ARE TRYING TO SAVE CHILDREN FROM DRUG CARTELS, PEDOPHILES, SEX TRADE, AND SO MUCH MORE.

  18. Patricia…how so, is this President like Hitler? He has not put children in concentration camps…the Dems, under Obama did that…also their own negligent parents did that to them. They put themselves and their children in danger sneaking into this country. If they came the proper way, there would have not been a problem. Obama put the cages there…Trump is building the wall, and dealing with Mexico to prevent this from happening. All people need to do is be responsible in making good choices by doing the right thing for their children…and that being…come here legally as our ancestors did. It is just and fair…and this is the only type of person that we should welcome into our country. TRUMP/PENCE 2020!!

  19. Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski are Trump Haters and backstabbers. They need to be kicked out of the Republican Party and Congress

  20. Patricia
    Your are most likely a bimbo, so quite calling our President names, pack you bags and get out of the country

  21. Patricia, name calling is the only skill Democrats have mastered and it ain’t purdy. Trump’s main enemies, Nancy, Pelosi, Mitt Romney, John Kerry and Joe Biden all have sons who are mlking the Ukraine.

  22. Nancy Pelosi showed all you deplorable democrats what she really is by going on national tv with the one and only bill mare the filthy mouth little punk
    Her trying to act like a real religious person is a joke she is going straight to hell to burn
    Thanks to the deplorable California communist racist democrats

  23. Who is against him is very telling: Joe Biden, who has a son milking the Ukraine, Mitt Romney, who has a son milking Ukraine, John Kerry, who has a son milking the Ukraine and Nancy Pelosi, who also has a son milking the Ukraine. No wonder we’re called “Ugly Americans” all across the globe.

  24. So Paul Rand wants to allow President Trump to defend himself? What a novel idea! Unlike the Animal House style show with Dean Wormer at the helm the Democrats just put on, Senate Republicans want fairness. No, this will never work in the lawless world of the Democrats. Otherwise how would you convict someone whose actually innocent of the bogus charges?

  25. The prosecution rested their case when they sent the article to the Senate.

    NOW it is the Defense Turn to Present their case!

    Courts don’t work the way liberal want them to when they are going to lose.

  26. Trump / Pence 2020
    The swamp is nasty , and
    it needs much work …
    Drain the Swamp …
    Stop electing Democracts ,
    To anything …

  27. i AM VOTING FOR HIM IN THE 2020 ELECTION I VOTED FOR HIM IN THE LAST ELECTION AND I AM VERY PLEASED WITH OUR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP I PRAY FOR HIM HIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDRENS CHILDREN DAILY

  28. The DEMWITTS in CONGRESS and the SENATE are FOOLS if they BUY what the Demwitt House is TRYING TO SELL. It should never even get to a vote once they present and then the LEGAL REPUBLICAN lawyers present the case that there is NO CLEAR and IMPEACNABLE offenses in what the DEMWITTS based their IMPEACHMENT.

  29. I never comment but sorry Patricia that’s really one dumb statement get your facts first before you say stupid things

  30. Everybody thinks Bolton would trash Trump, I think the opposite would happen. He’s smart enough to know it would be asinine to have every conversation between a security advisor and the president available to a whacked-out opposition congress. The Dems would raise holy cane if the GOP tried something like this with Barry.

  31. Trump is a Hitler in America. He, like Hitler, has put children into concentration camps because they tried to come to America for Freedom and opportunities but were taken from their parents and put into camps where some were beaten.

  32. If there are any witnesses called, Biden and Schiff need to be some of them.
    Demoncrats want this impeachment rigged but we should not stand for it.
